Despite his worst form in the shortest format in 2018, Kohli continued to back MS Dhoni in T20Is.

Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma could not perform consistently in Test cricket despite making his debut in 2013. When Kohli became captain, Rohit started getting more chances in the longest format.

It was Virat Kohli who sent him to open in a 2019 Test against South Africa. That decision proved to be game changer as Rohit has now become one of the best Test openers.

KL Rahul

KL Rahul made his Test debut in MS Dhoni's last game as captain and could not have much impact. Virat Kohli, in his first-ever game as India skipper sent Rahul to open, and he struck his maiden century.

Since then KL Rahul established himself as one of the mainstays of the Indian Test team until recently when he has been dropped due to his poor form in the format.
